Optimized license management is a necessity for all software licenses owned by the enterprise, from desktop to datacenter and beyond. While many organizations understand their license position for the desktop estate, the reality is that licensing in the datacenter still presents a daunting set of challenges that require a robust, automated Software License Optimization solution.
Compounding this, it is difficult to take the same set of processes, technologies, and remediation techniques used to manage desktop licenses and apply them to datacenter license management. Organizations need a solution to address the unique license management requirements of enterprise IT environments including the desktop, datacenter and private and/or hybrid clouds. Applications in the datacenter are strategic and run the business, but they are also typically the most expensive.
Optimizing license and maintenance spend in the datacenter typically represents the greatest potential cost-savings in the software portfolio. Decreasing ongoing costs of multi-million dollar applications in the datacenter is a fundamental component of overall IT spend reduction. As organizations continue datacenter consolidation through virtualization, license optimization in the datacenter becomes even more critical to reduce the associated risk of software license noncompliance – and more difficult without an automated solution.
